FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Another Central Kentucky city could take the first step toward adopting a fairness ordinance today.

City leaders in Frankfort are set to debate the anti-discrimination law during today's work session.

If the Board of Commissioners allows the ordinance to move forward, it will require two readings and a vote to become law.

The fairness ordinance would protect people from being fired, denied housing, and other discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Only four Kentucky cities have an LGBT anti-discrimination ordinance in place: Lexington, Louisville, Covington, and the small Eastern Kentucky town of Vicco, which attracted national attention when it passed its fairness ordinance earlier this year.
